A mutlimedia performance based on the history of "SONY"
premiered in 2004, Bonn Biennale
At the end of their lives, two old friends meet and look back. After the war, they founded a small enterprise in a burned ruin in the devastated city of Tokyo. They dreamt of becoming the leading company in consumer electronics. They wanted to help reconstructing Japan and strengthen its pride and dignity, and they even planned to conquer the American market once.
“Heavenly Bento” tells the (almost true) story of two men and their creation. It is a story of friendship and power, genius and insanity, identity and assimilation, control and its loss. In the end there will be a kind of dinner. The audience is invited to enjoy an abstract bento box full of pictures and remembrances, anecdotes and stories, victories and defeats. A bento box full of life.
